Are Your Current Backup Procedures Keeping Your Business As Safe As Possible?


Are Your Current Backup Procedures Keeping Your Business As Safe As Possible?


With it being World Backup Day on Thursday 31st March we wanted to share the importance of backing up.

We give you four questions to review your current backup solutions and explain how our Backup and Business Continuity services can ensure all your information is completely safe.

According to World Backup Day

  • 113 phones are lost/stolen every minute
  • 29% of data loss cases are caused by accident
  • 30% of computers are already affected by malware

To keep your business safe from ever-increasing security threats and cyber attacks (including data theft) you need a reliable, effective backup solution and IT recovery plan.

Do you have something in place already?  What do you know about your current backup solution? Take a moment and ask yourself these 4 questions.

  1. How long would a full system recovery take from your existing backups?
  2. Are your existing backups automatic, secure and include an on and off-site component?
  3. Does your current backup solution cover pro-active monitoring so that any issues or failures can be dealt with?
  4. Will engineers respond immediately if you have an IT disaster situation?

Hopefully, you’ll be confident in all your answers but if you’re unsure we are here to help!
